This Week in Sneaks

Over the past couple of years, Foamposite-filled sneakers have made a big impact in the sneaker industry to say the least. Sneakers such as the “Eggplant” Nike Air Foampsite One, the Nike 1/2 Cent and the Nike Foamposite Lite “Kryptonate” have garnered an abundance of attention. In addition, this year’s “Copper” Nike Air Foamposite One may be the most highly-anticipated sneaker of 2010 so far.

How many Foamposite sneakers have been created? Better yet, what are the best Foamposite sneakers to date. Our staff dug deep into the Nike vaults and came up with a list of the best Foamposite sneakers to date. Some of them have just released within the past couple of years, while others haven’t been seen since the early 90s. With that said, check out our

#15 – Nike Air Flightposite III “Platinumposite”

Top 15 Foamposite Sneakers

Nike Air Flightposite III "Platinumposite"

The Nike Air Flightposite III was not as popular as the first two Flightposite models; however, its “Platinumposite” colorway featured some can’t-miss attributed whether you liked it or not. The mirror-like features seen on the sides made this shoe the subject of any room one walked in. It is safe to say that this “Platinumposite” colorway was easily the best Flightposite III of them all. Is that saying much?

  1. Damn you guys!!! I was just in the process of doing this exact feature haha. Oh well. On to the next one.

    I gotta give it to the Royal Blue Foamposite One. All-time favorite sneaker.

  2. The only questions that I have about this list are where are the royal blue foamposite pro & the Dr. Doom foams? Both of those are tough finds. I’m also surprised the the black Flightposite Is escaped mention. I’ve been looking for those since they got retroed and damned if I can’t find a 13 anywhere.

  3. The top 2 can’t be argued and after the copper colorway is released it’ll move to #3……can anybody help me find a pair of the silver foamposite max I NEED THOSE!!!!!!!

  4. I think the 1/2 cent is the best. Any cw is a winner. I’m glad they pushed the date back on the copper foams, now I’m a cop 4sure. Also no way no how r the flightpisite 1-2 better then the 3. The 3 is the best flightposite n the plat is the best cw. 4 out of 5

  5. I remember seeing the royal Foams when they first came out. Our coach had a hookup, and got them *early*. My jaw dropped when he walked in the gym. Still my all time favorite foams.

  6. SkatManMackDaddy,

    Those definitely came up on the list when we were brainstorming along with some non basketball posites, but it was really tough to put those on in place of any of the top 15.

  7. This is a great list, and I’m glad to see so many great colorways included!

    However, I believe it’s ridiculous that the Eggplant Flightposites aren’t included in the top three! Sure the Gold Flights are a great pair of shoes, but in my opinion (and the opinion of MANY others), the Eggplants are the greatest Flightposites ever made.

    Even if they were listed after the Eggplant Foamposites, I would have been satisfied; but they HAD to be included in the top three. And to me, the Pearl Foam Pros and the Copper Foams shouldn’t be listed as better posites than the Eggplant Flights.

    However, you guys were dead on in putting the Royal Foams at number one though. Definitely a no-brainer, and a fitting end to the list.

  8. where can i get these? can someone plz tell me what store and online site that has these in size 11

  9. How are you not gonna include those light blue and white foams with the white check from a few years back. Those are def better than a lot of the 1s on this list.. imo

  10. Much Respect to NiceKicks .com! for giving props to the “Air Foamposites” & throwing together a “Nice” list…Come Peep our “TOP 5 Foam’s List”! & more @kickgamedvd.com

  11. I think the baby blue and white foamposites pros should of made the list take those lebrons off the list and the ducans should of been ranked higher

  12. The Tim Duncans need to be retroed. And yes the best Hyrbid ever is the 1/2 Cents. Eggplant & Coppers greatest shoes ever!

  13. wish the sole was black on the coppers and egg plants that icey sole is wack it turns yellow and mess the shoe up

  14. We’rent the VC1’s the first fusion of Shox and Foamposties…Those were mean looking and dope, especially with the Tar Heels colorwat


    where are the Carbon Fiber Flight Posites??????????????????????????????????????????/

  16. wait a minute…with all these different shoes and same design/different colourway nominees how you gonna call it a FOAMposite countdown why not just call it a ‘posite’ countdown they even got lebrons in here…
    2 seperate foam-pros? cmon man…silly countdown

    and anyway its top 5 like this…
    1 – foam 1 (and the Pro I guess would be 1.5?…)
    2 – penny half cent
    3 – flightposite 1
    4 – flightposite 3 and
    5 – the tim duncan

  17. the 1/2 cents the royals copper eggplants but the pearls take it home no better looking shoe beside the jordan 11 with the red bottoms if you ask me which is my favorite all time shoe got like 12 pair of those and s=will never ever think about sellin

  18. First the lebrons shudnt have made da list,
    personally da og baby blue/white foamposites pro shud have been on the list. The bred foamposite one shudd have been on their too!!!
    It’s funny how ery1 on foams now, I know guys in ny admitted dat dey jus got on em
    when the eggplants came out, my favorite foamposite dat I own are the royal blue foamposite one, and the red/black foamposite pros oh can’t forget da all black foamposite one dat I copped in 07
